3rd Grade Learning Through Gaming Ideas
Ananth Pai is a third-grade über teacher at Parkview/Center Point Elementary school in Maplewood, Minnesota. He uses online games to teach and it’s a rousing success as measured by test results. Pai says that in a matter of four months, the class’s reading and math scores went from below average for third grade to mid-fourth-grade level. His site is here.
This would be great for homeschoolers, teachers, and parents for wanting online educational games for home supplementation.
Here are the games he uses:
Fractions: by riding a virtual ghost train
Math Word and Real Life Problems: make a living by growing flower
Reading Skills: Razkids
Constitutional Rights: Go to Court Game
For those of us with kids on their Nintendo DSi, he has game recommendations: Brain Age 2, the word scramble game, or Math Blaster, which helps students practice their multiplication.
What online educational games do you recommend and for what grade? Thanks for sharing!
